Another Preview as I am starting to get caught up in editing and we're preparing for a couple viewing sessions. Wes' senior portrait session was half indoor/half outdoor. This is one of my favorites from his session... although there are quite a few to choose from.

Here's a sneak peak at Kira's outdoor session. Her viewing session is soon, so we don't want to spoil anything. We're excited to get more from her session posted afterward!

Woods at Sunset

Posted by posted by Kevin Barber at

Once in a while I like to go back and re-visit some of the pictures I've taken but haven't done anything with. This is particular picture was done using a technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range). Multiple exposures are used to capture both dark areas and light areas in greater detail. Those exposures are then put together on the computer to create one large file which contains much more information than would normally be captured.

Your eyes are very good at adjusting to a high range of lights to darks - that is to say they have a higher dynamic range than a camera can capture. Unfortunately, a computer display and printer have even less of a dynamic range, so we have to resort to tricks to be able to "correctly" reproduce what you could see if you're looking at that scene.

This was captured last April ('06) just northeast of Des Moines at Ashton Wildwood County Park on my way back from working in Waterloo.

Carla & Jess

Posted by posted by Kevin Barber Monday, September 03, 2007 at

Here's a little teaser of what's to come with Carla and Jess's pictures. Their wedding was Saturday, September 1st - we had a great time shooting their wedding. Everyone was extremely friendly and fun to work with.

More pictures will follow, but not until the bride and groom have had their viewing party - we wouldn't want to ruin anything for them :-)
